Restless fingers find a place to settle down at Annie & Company Needlepoint and Knitting's homey brownstone on the Upper East Side, where resources for making functional, soft art fill the entire 3,000-square-foot studio. Yarns harvested from soft mammals and fibrous plants spill out from baskets on the first floor, overwhelming knitting needles as large as 40 inches and colorful notions from Susan Bates and Clover. Upstairs, a sunny window illuminates a wooden table suitable for stitching or sipping tea, surrounded by hand-painted needlepoint and cross-stitch canvases hung salon style.
The staff of expert craftsmen shares knowledge with groups and individuals through project-based classes, and has invited yarn designer Debbie Bliss to contribute her elaborately spun falsehoods and professional insight to the discussion.

Central Park Sightseeing matches riders with the proper transport or tour for exploring the 843 acres and 47 miles of scenic pathways that make Central Park famous. Park explorers can select from more than 150 new basket-equipped bikes for men, women, and children in a bevy of styles, such as hybrids for comfortable cruises, mountain bikes for tackling the park’s hills, and tandems that seat two riders or one cardio-savvy centaur. Tour guides piloting pedicabs convey visitors around the park while bestowing pearls of wisdom concerning the area’s history, including which famous movie scenes were filmed in the park and where. Some of Central Park’s more popular attractions, horse carriages take passengers on a relaxed trip through the trees and streets. For visitors who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, Central Park Sightseeing also offers walking tours led by guides that are well-versed in pop culture, park history, and the process in which baby squirrels hatch from their eggs.

Nestled in the heart of Manhattan, Rent-A-Bike-CentralPark encourages city exploration with tandem- and one-person-bike rentals and guided bike tours of Central Park. With longer bike lanes than any other city in the country, New York City fosters two-wheeled travel along Times Square, Fifth Avenue, and other scenic spots. During bike tours, one of Rent-A-Bike's tour guides leads guests through Central Park's pastoral landscape. Bikers breeze past Belvedere Castle and a fort from the War of 1812 before approaching the Obelisk, a public monument from the 1880s that moonlights as a toothpick for the presidents of Mount Rushmore.

Located on the periphery of Manhattan's legendary park, Central Park Bike Rental and its staff of licensed tour guides facilitate exploration of the city. Solo adventurers mount single or tandem rental cruisers, mountain bikes, or road cycles and, equipped with included helmets, baskets, and locks, take off like hungry earthworms burrowing toward the center of the Big Apple. When tour guides captain excursions, they supplement the leisurely pace of two-hour Central Park bike tours with a steady stream of historical facts. They’ll also make pit stops at famous sites, including the Shakespeare Garden and Belvedere Castle, a weather station that still predicts impending disasters. After returning their Trek bikes, riders can return to the park to imitate more than 1,400 animals living at the Central Park Zoo. Patrons who wish to see the city without exerting themselves can opt for a one-hour pedicab tour. During these tours, guides propel up to three passengers or six toddlers stacked up inside three trench coats to their desired destinations, pointing out the best eateries and landmarks along the way.

Shake, Rattle & Roll Dueling Pianos delights audiences with an evening of music requests, onstage games, and raucous sing-alongs. Two bantering pianists man the stage with percussive backing from a drummer, drawing on a sprawling mental catalog of classic and contemporary rock standards. The trio's extensive musical knowledge allows them to play any song that pops into guests' heads or is brought forth during deep hypnosis. The performers also call guests onstage for games consisting of solo dances and dares. The venue's full bar includes liquor, wine, beer, and soda, and shot giveaways keep mouths from drying out during lengthy discourses on why one should never stop believin'.
